A Shefford producer-singer-songwriter has signed a publishing deal on the release of his new album.

London and Nashville-based Southern Crossroads Music has signed up Chris Corney, a guitarist and singer who has been writing for 20 years, including with his band The Ravines.

His music has been used on TV and by former Go West singer Peter Cox - check out track Dashboard Tracks on his new album out this autumn.

Corney’s Airways Mansion - Tom’s fourth self-penned album - is a Tom Petty-esque 10-track featuring two previously released singles – the sweet Little Marakesh and the lush America.

It’s bitter-sweet power pop perfect to transport you to a mid-west sidewalk as you fight the rain to work. Class.
